Archive for the ‘watercolor’ Category

Last Sunday, I attended my first “Art time for the womyn” gathering. A friend of mine from work hosted this event. A small group of us are getting together once a month to create whatever we feel like creating. I worked on a watercolor painting. For not touching watercolors since college, it wasn’t too bad.

My first watercolor painting in a long time

I am very inspired by the women in this town. Yes, they all have quite a few years on me, but I still feel just as much of a connection with some of them as I do with friends my own age. One friend in particular is a daily inspiration to me. She has had such an incredible and difficult life. From a teenage date-rape pregnancy to several bad bad husbands to writing a song for Willie Nelson (which he recorded), she has had an incredible journey. She is always positive and encouraging.

I’m looking forward to many more Art Sundays. It’s wonderful to be surrounded by creative people and taking the time to be creative myself.
